Research Statement

The R&D Operational Capability Statement (RDOCS) is a new standard document for organisations working within the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Research Support Services framework. The NIHR expects that all Organisations, such as Airedale, who are intending to sponsor or participate in research have an RDOCS which is regularly reviewed.

The RDOCS summarises the facilities and research capability of the Organisation, and also enables others to avoid proposing studies that the Organisation is unable to support.

The RDOCS is regularly reviewed and updated.
